Have you ever popped microwave popcorn and found those kernals at the bottom of the bag that never seem to pop. Well the answer to that is because as the popcorn bag begins its dive to the big zero on the countdown clock the bag begins to cool. That and the fact that the oil in the bag has pretty much been dispersed to the popped kernals, there is nothing really going inside the bag to allow all the kernals to pop. So don't stick your bag back in the microwave to finish popping the kernals, you will end up burning the corn you already popped.

Odd Dreams

I have had to very weird dreams in the past two nights...

Dream 1. I had a pet Bull...not a pitbull..a pet bull...He had full horns and would run around like a guarddog in my backyard...the only time he was calm was when he was around me.

Dream 2. I was on a bobsled team. I could clearly see the track and was telling my down will increase our speed.

Any thoughts...

Birdman....don't ever doubt me again...All others...when it comes to music and concerts please trust me in what my predictions are.

Last week I sent a message to Birdman stating that Rage Against the Machine was offered 1.5 Million dollars to play at the 2007 Coachella Art and Music festival. He didn't believe it would happen.

Today....KROQ announced that Rage Against the Machine has reunited and will be playing at Coachella on night number 3 which is April 29th. This reunion has been 6 years in the making as they broke up in late 2000 or early 2001. There has been wide speculation as to why Audioslave raced to release their latest record "Revelations". From what I have been able to gather they had a 3 record contract and wanted to complete their obligations before moving on to other projects. Chris Cornell has been wanting to do a solo project for sometime now and well the other members reformed Rage.


The other two Coachella dates will be headlined by Red Hot Chili Peppers and Bjork.

Top 5 Albums of 2006

Sorry for the delay...Have been pretty busy....but here it is

Audioslave's Top 5 CD picks of the year

Surprisingly enough, Audioslave's Revelations is not included on the list...The album lacked any energy I like to feel coming from an album. I don't even think that any of their songs made it to Radio. Rage reunion anyone?

5. Justin Timberlake - Future Sex / Love Sounds. JT as I like to call him was at one time on my hated list of musicians for a little group called NSuck...or something similar to that. He has made a complete turn around and with Timbaland cutting the tracks, this album makes you want to go out and boogie. Best track on the CD is easily Sexy Back but could be tied with My Love.

4. My Chemical Romance- Welcome to the Black Parade. This album showed how much this band has matured. Great anthems including Black Parade and the Teenagers Scare the Shit out of me track.I wonder what Bert McCracken is doing now that his band is less popular than the band that he found

3.Wolfmother- Self Titled. Nobody told me that Black Sabbath and Led Zepplin joined forces and created a new band...Oh wait...they didn't? That's right. Wolfmother's Self Titled album is one of my favorites. The lead singer has an awesome voice, the band has a new sound that gives me an eargasim, and there is not one bad song on this album. If you haven't bought it, buy it!

2.Incubus - Light Grenades. From top to finish, not a bad song on this album. I'm no mo, but Brandon Boyd's voice is freakin awesome

1. Tool - 10,000 Days. Many of my friends call this album Tool's weirdest and some find it kind of creepy. I love it. Radio hits Vicarious and The Pot are both good tunes but I have 4 favorite tracks on the cd: Wings for Marie, 10,000 days, Lost Keys (Blame Hofmann), and finally Rosetta Stoned. Lost Keys and Rosetta Stoned are to this album as Parabol and Parabola are to their previous Lateralus CD.

Lost Keys (Blame Hoffmann) is an intro song for Rosetta Stoned and refers to Albert Hoffman, the creator of LSD. The song itself has no lyrics but is a story of a Nurse speaking with a Doctor about a patient who is in this mental ward with no ID, stable vitals; they pretty much don't know what is going on with this patient. The Doctor proceeds to ask the patient, "tell me what is wrong". The patient finally answers the doctor in the song called Rosetta Stoned.

A little background for those who don't know what Rosetta Stone is. It is a stone which dates back to 196 B.C. The priests of Egypt would scribe into the stone in three different scripts: Greek (Egyptian language during that time), Demotic (common script in Egypt), and hieroglyphics (used for Religious Documentation). Rosetta is the town the stone was found in. It was used as a communication device so that the priests, government officials and rulers of Egypt could read what it said, it was sort of their newspaper. In this case it was written to honour the Egyptian pharaoh who had done good for the People of Egypt.

In the song Rosetta Stoned, the letter "d" was added to stone which signfies that this communicator is well...stoned..It is about a Man who is having a really bad acid trip just outside of Area 51 in the Nevada Desert (side note, I heard Area51 got moved to Idaho).This communicator thinks of himself as Rosetta Stone, the communicator, and is abducted by Aliens. He is supposed to tell all on Earth of how we are to die as the aliens told him. However, as the lyrics state, this communicator "forgot his pen, shit the bed again" (a saying used for messing up) and we will more than likely never know how aliens are going to kill us.

If you listen to the last song on Lateralus, there is a guy on there talking about how he used to work at Area51. I wonder if that person is Rosetta Stoned....
